I should clarify it's $2 extra for the SSFIV pot, we're not having a MvC3 pot in the first month to encourage people to pick up and try the game.
Give us your opinions though if you think we should adopt a pot for MvC3 from the next event onwards though.

It's cool that this is next door to my house, but why did we change from the convent?

Long story, we'll explain it on the day.

@Loki: I don't think many people will mind paying the $2 for both SSFIV and MvC3.
Some might only come for MvC3.

When I drove past, it looked like there was some parking at the back. Other then that, you can park on the street.

Some might only come for MvC3.

I'm sure most people won't, but the idea was really so we didn't scare anyone off on the first event from getting into MvC3, since it's brand new we want to encourage as many people as possible to get serious about it. I'd certainly be recommending a buy-in the second month, I'm just hesitant about the first month that's all.
What do you guys think?

It's cool that this is next door to my house, but why did we change from the convent?

The short version of the story is that the convent wants to change it's image and become more of a wedding venue, so they aren't accepting bookings from community groups like us anymore. It's a shame, but we're moving on to bigger and better things. We expect this venue will be better apart from the less central location. We'll test it out either way and then see what we think. :)

For those bringing gear I'm told there's parking right next to the doors to the venue.

Sure, nobody here is going to say "I'm not comfortable with paying $2", everybody on this forum has already decided whether or not they want to play the game, and a pot isn't going to make much of a difference, but I do conceptually like the idea of CW as the more casual gathering compared to CCH/Deakin, which are all about leveling up, the meetup where there's people who play different games (as in, more different than SF4 vs MvC3), and people can try out the games they don't currently play seriously, and I think having no pot the first month for a game encourages that. It's not about the amount of money, it could be $10 or 20c, it's the required weighting of "do I really want to put my hand back in my wallet?" vs "sure, why not try the shiny new game?". I'd also argue that for most of us, the game is new and shiny enough to build hype in and of itself.

Or at least, that's my current wacky theory, and as Loki said, obviously there would be a pot next month.

Honestly I don't mind too much either way, as mentioned, $2 is pretty minimal, so I'm fine with having it if it's what most people would prefer. It was simply what made sense to me in regards to the first event of the year, but I guess it can be argued from the other way too, if we want people to take MvC3 seriously we need to treat it seriously as well.

As for taking CW as the more casual event, I don't think that's wise to push for to be honest, considering it's the event with the most equipment and experience behind it, not to mention the fact that we seemingly have internet access at this new venue and might even be able to do things like regular streaming and the like. That mentality seems a waste of those opportunities.

End of the day $2 is a splash in the pan. if someone isnt willing to put 2 bucks in to play then whats the point of it. they will play the 1st tourney and wont bother the next. And imo those type of ppl wont be contributing to the community if this was the case then might as well make cw's total free entry because we dont wanna scare pot monsters away.

Yeah that's a good point and at the end of the day it probably won't make that much difference.
If people want $2 entry for MvC3 as well I'm happy for that to happen.

I don't think you have to play 'seriously' to enter tournaments despite having an entry fee or not. I myself was a gamer who thought 'I'd just embarrass myself'. But I'm blending into the community really well even though I'm not much of a high achiever or performer. I mean seriously, If you play a certain game (or heck, be it a physical activity) and you've found out a whole bunch of other people playing the same game that you 'like' to play, why wouldn't you want to play together? I mean nobody is forcing you, I guess if you are a gamer and want that 'gamer' title in you, NOT to go to shame, at least come and spectate, We all cheer at awesome combos and get hype when someone does a comeback. You're not the only one. No one will tell you off (This isn't WoW)

And Melbourne community is on a good start because everyone is friendly and most likely share tips if you ask :)

Oh and x-factor Sentinel is broken :( We all agree.

I've just found out that most likely Zan and Bugsimus won't be able to make this one, due to work and car troubles respectively. These guys usually provide two of the tournament setups, so I'm a little worried we might be low on setups.

You guys who usually bring your setups to things like Deakin and CCH, but not to CW, if you could please bring gear today that would be great. We will of course have the CW monitors and the like, so really what's most important is more Xboxes, games and sticks.

Thanks! See you all there!

Need player names again.

I did take a pic of the name list in both the Pools of MvC3 but...

who was the Haggar/Hulk/Sentinel player in one of the finals games with ToXY?

Guys, I totally forgot to pay this month!, but I'll pay for this month next time  ;D.

I was running late for VF5 so I guess it slipped my mind  :P.

Loved the new venue btw, though I guess It's a bit far for some folks, but only 20 minutes for me as opposed to 45 for the convent  ;)

Tournament was pretty fun, :3 although I still don't own the game yet... Hence why I was completely fail at this game.. Lol.

Anyway yeah, I'm a new person to the scene. I was that random female person, ewww. But regardless, once I get the moneys to purchase this game, I'll start practicing and you'll see me around in the future tournaments ^_^.

Thanks to all the nice people who welcomed me too.

I think you and Pyro will do well. Pyro has improved a lot, and together you guys have done well in the past.
I think it will be good practice for SS2011.

Not saying you guys will be the only commentators, but possibly the main ones.  :p:
